Data is increasingly informing our WIL programs, career centres and universities. We are collecting qualitative and quantitative data through various mediums such as surveys, evaluations, applications, but what are we doing with this valuable information? With the advances in strategic decision-making and program management, how can we analyze this data to extract insights and to make data-driven decisions for our organization? How can we best use data to engage students, attract new employers, and communicate the value and success of programs to our stakeholders?

Understanding, evaluating and presenting complex data can be the key to making decisions that can positively impact the development of our programs. Join us in-person or by webinar for this informative session on how to leverage your organization’s data for strategic growth. Networking and social to follow.
